This is going to make me sound like a scrooge.
I seem to be reading about new increases in public expenditure every day - more funding for social welfare, subsidies for more people in more areas of their lives. Funny that all the largesse never seem to satisfy the vociferous demands for more. It is well and good that we are such a compassionate society, but I am expecting my tax assessment in the mail any minute, and can't help wondering what the bill is going to be.
Before you stone me, I'm not one of the 1% super rich. Just a working girl paying off my mortgage.
